Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a Nigerian writer who also lives in the United States. The Times Literary Supplement called her “the most prominent” of a “procession of critically acclaimed young anglophone authors” of Nigerian fiction who are attracting a wider audience particularly in her second home, the United States. Adichie is author of a TEDx talk and later book We Should All Be Feminists. In addition to other works of poetry and short stories, she also published Americanah: [a novel] in 2014. In a 2008 New Yorker article, she describes her inspiration as Chinua Achebe, Nigerian author of Things Fall Apart.
